March 31st is a day to respect and support transgender people in our community (people who have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from the biological gender they were assigned at birth).
You want to be an ally? Be a good listener! So here are 5 books written BY people from the transgender community. There’s something here for every age reader, no matter what sort of journey you’re on – be it a journey of awareness and acceptance or self-discovery.
These are the authors I discovered in 2017 and instantly fell in love with. From YA to feminist manifestos to graphic novels, their books warmed my heart, led me outside of my comfort zone, and changed my perspectives forever. What authors did you discover in 2017? And who did you fall in love with?
I’m trying something a little different with this post. Although I didn’t feel right reviewing IT by Stephen King, didn’t want to forget what I loved about it and how it motivated me to try out different techniques in my own writing.
So the purpose of this post is to reflect on great writing techniques used in this book in a practical way that will help me grow. Who knows, maybe you’ll find something here to inspire you too! I have a feeling this post will grow into a blog series, so keep an eye out.
As always, if you have any opinions on this book I’d love to hear from you in the comments.

I love writing reading resolutions because they are fascinating to look back on. They make it easy to see how much you’ve grown and how your interests and values have evolved. (Needless to say I plan to read a lot of Own Voices this year. If your resolution is to read more diversely, check out my 2018 Diverse Voices Reading Challenge.)
I would love to hear about your resolutions, whether they be personal, reading, writing, blogging, or study goals. I wish you the best of luck in everything you dream of achieving xo

Dear bloggers and book lovers, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I know this time of year can be both relaxing and stressful, so I hope you are practicing good self-care. One of my favourite things about the holiday season is reflecting on the books I’ve read. I covered YA + junior fiction and adult fiction + nonfiction in two separate posts, since I simply had too many favourites this year!
